Tread lightly on our good friend Barlow, his raison d'etre at EFF has always been "Freedom of Speech". His statement was "i wish i could support that", if you read the footnote, he misspoke in his interview with ABC.

When one considers the life-long contributions of good American folks such as Barlow, his bud, JFK Jr. and his living Bro, RFK Jr. it's humbling to think how much more most of us could have given of our existence on this planet.

There is a difference between asserting that prosecuting wikileaks is a bad idea in terms of free speech, and saying that everything wikileaks has done is good. (I agree with the former and have no informed opinion about the latter, but I doubt it.)

Hmmm...well, I definitely feel humbled when looking at the life long contributions of some people, but I can't say John Barlow is one of them.
